    tomorrow is the last day for the first people to have the phone to get to return it with no questions asked.... the 'update' is still 5 days out.

    I was there at the butt crack of dawn launch day. Even in the final hours i'm undecided.

    where are the rest of you?

    edit: i'm already on my second one!

    Butcrack of dawn 1 month ago also.

    Coming from the MotoQ I'm keeping this one.

    I get frustrated with it at times but it does so much more than what I had before.

    Also, I paid extra for a 1 year contract to keep my options open.

    The receipt said the purchase price was $369.. Which reminds me I need to submit for the rebate.

    Assuming launch day is day one, I got mine on day two, and will also be past my 30 days before the update comes. That said, I have had no real problems with mine, other than the battery door falling off. Each time this happens I make another minor adjustment, and it takes longer before it falls off again, but it still happens. But I came from Sprint after being booted for excessive roaming, so I really have nothing to go back to. Since I've had a Blackberry before and still prefer the Driod, and wouldn't touch a WinMo device, I'm with the Droid for the long haul.

    What sort of adjustments are you making to keep the battery door from falling off?

    too many good things from this phone to give it back. For a techie, this phone is great, for a (below) average consumer, the iPhone may be better :)

    I was on the fence, especially when the Verizon manager told me the Passion was coming soon, but decided to stick with the Droid and sent my rebate in yesterday.

    I got mine last Thu and had to return the next day because of bluetooth not working. So I am on my 2nd droid (moved from an i760) and I am keeping it.

    Wondering if I should get my (non techie) wife an android phone, Verizon is giving away the HTC Eris this weekend (with the purchase of an Eris or Droid).

    well, looks like i'm here to stay... my time has expired and verizon owns me for another 2 years :D

    overall i'm very happy with the phone. i knew before i bought the thing that i would be guinea pig for a newer product. So far everything i have had troubles with is software related really. so it can only get better with a good hardware base and an active community.

    Went today and took back my Droid that I got on opening day. Have had some lockup issues with phone calls and email, among other things. This one so far is running great, and looking forward to the update.

    Even though I got my phone on release date, Verizon still honored the Droid Eris deal. My wife wanted to get a new phone, so after 29 days after buying the droid.. I still got the Eris for free for my wife. Love Verizon for that. Hope the new OS update will fix some issues with the Moto droid, and update the Eris to the new OS.

    I followed this video. I've been very careful not to put too much pressure on anything while doing this, which is probably why I'm progressively having more success. It's probably been 5-7 days since it last fell off.

    I have had mine since the second day and I bought the hard snap on case. I think it was around 16.00 and might save you this battery case headache.

    It will be interesting to see how aggressive Google is with OS updates, adding things like sense ui type improvements. Considering what they have done in the past year we have the potential to see a lot of improvement. These guys do not mess around. Not like Microsoft, they have been working on WinMo7 for about two years now and still have at least a year to go (just don't get it)!
